Rusted Mirror

This started life as one of those plain wood mirrors from a well known Swedish interiors shop. I attacked it with paint to create the rusted / verdigris look.  The embellishments are made from clay and moulds or are metal charms also rusted.  Along the bottom corner I have used Grunge Paste through a Dylusions stencil then highlighted it with Gilding Wax.  I am entering this into the That's Crafty Masks, Stencils and Templates Challenge

I Know

The current theme at Sunday Postcrad Art is "Bird People".  This card started out with some gelli printing I wasn't keen on and I went over it testing some opalescent paint for brayeriness (not a real word I know) , and likes the result.  The collage is a mix of Crowabout Studios and Art,Tea Life.

Off with his head!

A tag for the Tag Along Challenge #46 Alice in Wonderland.  The stamp  of the Knave holding the Card is Scollswork and  the rest is paint and pens
